I've been reading though the posts and I've noticed some members have subtitles. I was wondering what they mean?

Your title depends on the number of posts you make.

Thanks Ramon!

It's funny how they all relate to Seinfeld characters/situations in some way. How do the architect, superman and cock-eyed optimist relate? What are they suppossed to mean?

Hi Amy...
1)George always wanted to pretend to be an architect, and got to do it a few times.
2)Almost every show has a subtle or blatant reference to Superman. It seems our friend Yerry Steinfeld has a fixation with the caped man in leotards.
3)If I'm not mistaken, "cock-eyed optimist" is a reference to a famous book that I probably should know the title to. I think Elaine had to read it for a publishing job or something, but got Kramer to read it instead, and he had to tell her what it was about. So he said it's about Billy Mumphrey, blah blah blah who turned out to be a cock-eyed optimist, in Kramer's words. Then again, I could be WAAAAYYYY off!!!

He was a simple country boy that got caught up in the high stakes game of world diplomacy and international intrigue...

Funny that Amy is not curious about SOB as that is a bit more obscure than say...Superman!

That "SOB" under Gendison's name has nothing to do with Seinfeld... Stan put it there permanently! Laughing Laughing

By the way Gendison, if you want, you can spell the name the right way and it will continue to count your posts as long you use the same email address. That would be one less bit of BS you'd have put up with from people, and also avoid some smart-ass from coming on here and using the name spelled correctly.

GENDISON: Elaine? Can I come?

ELAINE: I'm, I'm sorry.. We've already got a Gendason.

Thanx Jimmy, but i'll keep the spelling. We must go forward, not back.
Besides, the only time anyone ever makes a comment about me spelling it wrong is when they have nothing else to comment on, so I know they're pretty much stifled if that's the best they can come up with. It's usually one of the niciest things anyone's ever said to me.
